    Making it rain!

      Make it RAIN! Hot water in the jar, cold front "clouds" on rains in the jar. Totally awesome meteorology science idea.

      5th grade science.. Kids would "get" the water cycle SO MUCH more if they did THIS instead of just read about it in a text book!! ...and so simple.

      I hate science fair projects, but this would be easy! Making it rain! Good science project for the kids!

      Accelerate the water cycle inside a Mason Jar so kids don't have to wait so long to see it in action. Great lesson on water via @Jenae {I Can Teach My Child!}

    • Kimberly Schrader Grimes

      See the water cycle in action with this experiment that is both fun and simple for kids. This would be great for Brownies working on the Wonders of Water Journey

      Making it rain! Good science project for the kids! @Kristin Wilson Abby said she will be having Science Fair projects this year!

    Here's a nice idea for making a water cycle wheel.

    cloud rain experiment

    So fun! Stick a pencil straight through bag of water without a leak! #GaleriAkal Untuk berbagi ide dan kreasi seru si Kecil lainnya, yuk kunjungi website Galeri Akal di Mam!

    You can use electricity to split hydrogen gas out of the water similar to the process called electrolysis.

    Wish teachers could teach using lessons like this instead of teaching to pass a state mandated test!!!!!!!!!!!! Weather: Fill the cup with water. Put shaving cream on top for a cloud. Explain that when clouds get really heavy with water, it rains! Then put blue food coloring on top of the cloud, and watch it rain. Kids love experiments!

    make a cloud

    Super cool for classroom, homeschooling or for the little science lover in your home. The 3D Water Cycle is a real winner!

    Monogrammed Mason Jars - I want a set of these!

    Mason jar to mug - love it!

    Exploring the Effects of Hot and Cold Air

    Wear an old sock over your shoe. Go for a nature walk. Remove sock, spritz with water & put into a ziploc bag. Hang the bag in a window for 2 what GROWS! Very cool! Also check out Mrs. Drake's webpage for science resources. It's a GOLDMINE!

    Newton's First: with raw eggs. Pinner said: "ok, this is cool! Our family just tried it. I wish I had, had a camera for my husband's face when I knocked the pie pan! lol The kids think this is SO cool!" (Wk 16)

    Science: mini water cycle THIS IS SO COOOOLLLL!!!!

    A volcano in a mug. Neat idea to show kids how they work. Much more accurate than the old baking soda/vinegar idea.

    Dancing raisins activities. Lots of fun experiments. I have done this experiment, and seen the entire class become silent out of curiosity. It is a great engagement piece for a lesson, and it can be hands on if you ask for volunteers!

    Cool Science for Kids: Growing Crystals (pipe cleaners, borax and hot water) in the shape of their name or snowflakes, starbursts.
